In January 2017, Facebook began making algorithm changes to make sure conservative and Christian news was no longer so influential. Now The End Begins Facebook traffic has consistently decreased with each algorithm change.

EDITOR’S NOTE: In Nazi Germany, when Hitler wanted to “rank” the Jews, he made them all wear a yellow star as they were placed into ghettos. Now Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants to do the same thing to Conservative and Christian voices on his social media site. His ‘yellow star’ is a new ranking algorithm which will separate out Conservative and Christian posts, identify them as ‘fake news’ no matter the actual content, and then assign them their place in the Facebook ‘ghetto’ where very few if anyone will ever actually read them. Zuckerberg says that this will “restore trust” to Facebook in much the same way that Hitler told the Jews that going in to the shower would refresh them. What he didn’t tell them that the showers were actually gas chambers. Before the purge began in early 2017, NOW THE END BEGINS had an average of 2 million views per month. Now we average around 500,000 which has resulted in a 75% drop in revenue from ad placement. That’s why we started the fundraiser last year. Eventually, Conservatives and Christian voices will be eliminated altogether from platforms like Facebook, but until we are, we will continue to expose the darkness of the times in which we live.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday that the company has already begun to implement a system that ranks news organizations based on trustworthiness, and promotes or suppresses its content based on that metric.
Zuckerberg said the company has gathered data on how consumers perceive news brands by asking them to identify whether they have heard of various publications and if they trust them.
“We put [that data] into the system, and it is acting as a boost or a suppression, and we’re going to dial up the intensity of that over time,” he said. “We feel like we have a responsibility to further [break] down polarization and find common ground.”
Zuckerberg met with a group of news media executives at the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel in Menlo Park after delivering his keynote speech at Facebook’s annual F8 developer conference Tuesday.
The meeting included representatives from BuzzFeed News, the Information, Quartz, the New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, NBC, Recode, Univision, Barron’s, the Daily Beast, the Economist, HuffPost, Insider, the Atlantic, the New York Post, and others.
The event, called “OTR” (shorthand for “off the record”), is an annual gathering meant for new media news executives to talk shop. It is in its second year. Zuckerberg’s remarks were initially meant to be, like the name of the conference, off the record, but he agreed to answer questions on the record.
Zuckerberg said the company will invest “billions” of dollars in a combination of artificial intelligence and tens of thousands of human moderators to keep both fake news and deliberate propaganda at bay, especially in elections.
“We’re essentially going to be losing money on doing political ads,” he said of the investment the company is making to avoid a repeat of the spread of Russian propaganda in the 2016 US election.
“The big miss is we didn’t expect these kind of coordinated information operations” in 2016, said Zuckerberg, and that the company was more focused on hacking in malware. He said the company is expecting that kind of information war now and has already successfully countered it in elections from France to Alabama.
“We deployed AI tools that have taken down tens of thousands of accounts,” he said of those elections.
Zuckerberg’s Announcement Means Final Remaining Conservative Voices on Facebook Will Be Eliminated by Election Day
In January 2017, Facebook began making algorithm changes to make sure conservative news was no longer so influential. The Gateway Pundit Facebook traffic has consistently decreased with each algorithm change.
A March 2018 study by The Outline organization found conservative publishers were hit the hardest by Facebook algorithm changes. The study also showed that The Gateway Pundit was hit the hardest.
In March 2018 Western Journal also published a study that found conservative publishers were hit the hardest by the recent Facebook algorithm changes. The report found that liberal publishers actually saw a 2 percent increase in traffic. Conservative publishers lost an average of 14 percent in traffic.
Facebook official Campbell Brown, a former anchor on NBC and CNN, told attendees at a recent technology and publishing conference that Facebook would be censoring news publishers based on its own internal biases. And they did.
On Tuesday Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will ramp up its censorship of “controversial” political content. The announcement was made to a group of liberal publishers and the anti-Trump Wall Street Journal. source

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,621 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,600 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
